That’s right Bo’s stroke of brilliance should not be ignored:
We all know that we need a gender neutral/inclusive/3rd person/singular/human pronoun besides “it”. We have been waiting and waiting for the grammarians to introduce a new word for decades. But you know what? They’re not going to do anything. They’re sitting in their comfy chairs of power, smoking their cigars, making french toast and scrambled eggs, and you know what? They’re scared of the outside world of the colloquial. They’re threatened by hip hop and reality TV culture.
With a discovery this monumental I can’t imagine the rapidity of which this will be adopted into the mainstream.
